Character error 

When Linda phones Jim at the start of the film, she leaves a message saying that she picked up *his* message but she doesn't know when he called. Answering systems do log call times and dates.

When Linda approaches the garbage can to grab the missing page from the Yellow Book, the phone on the desk nearby is positioned diagonally, with the antenna pointed towards the trash can, and the scene cuts to a different focus. When it cuts back and she reaches for the phone, the antenna is pointing the other way.

When Linda is writing out the calendar, and adds the red "CUTS" element to Tuesday, you can see a red entry on the adjacent-to-the-right day (Wednesday). But when the camera again looks in from the top, Wednesday is clear.

When Linda is writing out the calendar of how each day has played out, she writes a large 'T' for Tuesday that extends into the Monday frame. The next time the camera shows this particular day, the 'T' is much smaller.

When Linda is writing what happened on the days of the week, you can see that right before she writes what happened on Wednesday she is holding the dark marker, but when she writes what happened on Wednesday she writes with the red marker.

As Linda start with the calendar, she counts to seven, indicating that she makes seven lines. With seven days, you would only need six lines, and when the calendar is shown, there are in fact only six lines.

Errors in geography 

U.S. Route 57 is signed north-south, not east-west as portrayed in the movie, even though most of the route is due east-west.

Factual errors 

Modern repair of facial injuries would not involve large black thread as used on the daughter, especially on a young child. Deep suturing, skin adhesives, dissolvable clear thread and other techniques would both minimize future scaring and reduce the visual impact whilst healing.

Plot holes 

When Dr. Roth comes to take Linda away on the day of the funeral, her mother is heard asking Linda to tell them what happened to Bridgette's face. As the cuts occurred prior to Jim's death, she should already know what happened, although Linda would not due to her not having lived through that day yet.

Revealing mistakes 

When Bridget runs through the glass door, the glass breaks into fairly large pieces which lacerates her severely. However, later on when Jim Hanson is cleaning up the glass, the glass appears to be pebble like with some still dangling from the top of the door. Pebble like glass fragments indicate that the glass is a tempered PVB laminated safety glass, which could not have injured Bridget to the extent of her injuries in the movie.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Errors in geography 

The accident that killed Jim occurred at mile marker 220 on US Highway 57. This is impossible, because US 57 only exists between Eagle Pass, Texas, and Moore, Texas, which is a total distance of 101 miles.

Miscellaneous 

(Possibly intentional by the filmmakers) When Linda visits Mile 220 the first time, she's abruptly interrupted in her standing-in-the-middle-of-the-road reverie by a Lincoln Town Car swerving around her and honking. When Jim meets his destiny at that same location later in the film, the car that swerves around him during his U-turn, causing him to stall in the middle of the road, is a Lincoln Town Car.

Plot holes 

On Thursday, the day Linda finds out about Jim's death, Bridgette is seen with no cuts on her face. As the movie progresses and Linda goes back in time, we see that Bridgette actually got her cuts while her husband is still alive.
